K-12 Learning Staff and Tutors

We are fortunate to have found amazing teachers and subject matter professionals who can connect with students to help them achieve academic goals and continue to improve.

We are happy to share more information about the tutor we will match your child with on a case-by-case basis.

Lori Peeples is the owner and director of K-12 Learning.  She and her husband, Andrew, are both military veterans. Lori served nearly 9 years on active duty in the Army while Andrew retired from the Air Force after 23 years of service.

After military service, Lori worked in a variety of technical leadership roles.  As a parent, Lori realized that there was a need for educational support services – tutoring, test prep and college planning services in the local community.  She has been a small business owner in Castle Pines since 2016 and has been helping students with college planning since 2017. She typically visits about 10 or more colleges/universities per year.

Lori values education and wants every child to feel confident in their own ability to learn.  Knowing the challenges that parents face, Lori wanted to provide educational support services that would take away the stress and concerns that parents may feel when trying to help their children with educational support.

Lori has the following degrees and certificate:

  • BA in Accounting with minors in Management and Economics from the College of St. Benedict.
  • Master of Human Relations (MHR) from the University of Oklahoma
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Carlson School of Management – University of Minnesota.
  • Independent Education Consultant certificate program from the University of California – Irvine.
  • Completed Master of Education (M.Ed.) in School Counseling in December 2021.
